Naples Fly Fishing the 10,000 Islands
  Here in the Everglades, we live in one of the most unique places on earth.  This is a diverse and fragile ecosystem; all species are connected, from the River of Grass all the way to the Gulf of Mexico. We are proud to support global conservation efforts as members  of  One Percent for the Planet and support under-funded conservation efforts around the planet as well as here in in our own back yard.

We are located south of Naples, Florida at Port of the Islands and fly fish Naples, Marco Island, Everglades National Park and throughout the 10,000 Islands. We will work hard to provide you with the best fly fishing southwest Florida has to offer. 

Fly fishing is our passion and that is all we do.  Our fishing is some of the most diverse in the world offering anglers one of the most challenging fly fishing destinations anywhere.  We promote catch and release fishing for our game fish and know that these fish are far too important of a resource to be caught only once.  These are tough fish, often selective and spooky - pack your best cast along with your sunblock and come fish with us.    

We hope you enjoy the information we share with you about our fishing and be sure to check our Catalog of what we think are some of the finest fly fishing products anywhere.  Sign up for our newsletter and fly fishing report on the link below.

We look forward to hearing from you,

Fishing Report - May 13, 2011

by Capt. Bill Baldus on 05/13/11

   Our warm weather continues with water temperatures in the 80s. The wind usually starts out in the morning with a light breeze from the northeast and switches to a steady south sea breeze by early afternoon. Once this south breeze hits, it becomes increasingly difficult to sight fish. Fish early and once the breeze kicks up start looking for places out of the wind.

   Tarpon are still here; not in the numbers we were finding a few weeks ago but there are still some big fish moving through on their way to Boca Grande. Water color continues to be the challenge in finding fish but these guys have a hard time hiding in lower tide conditions. Look for rolling fish on the higher tide.

   We are finding some reds on the lower water conditions, again, when you can see them. I fished with Chris Dakan and his wife Theresa this week primarily hunting for tarpon but found some reds cruising the outside points. Chris caught and released a nice red on a Whit's Blue Crab Special on the bottom of the low.

  Chris caught a great tarpon on his first shot at laid up fish with one of our new tarpon patterns, the Orange Crush.  Congratulations Chris.

We will keep you posted,

Capt Bill
